Being placed on the list does not mean the player has the COVID-19 virus. They are placed on the list either because of a positive test or because they have been exposed to someone who tested positive. Those in contact with people who tested positive enter quarantine.
The league is not releasing if a player tests positive, and how quickly players are taken off the list and can play again is subject to teams’ medical evaluations.
The NFL is testing players daily as part of its COVID-19 protocols this season. There were 40,479 tests of players and team personnel from Sept. 6-12 that resulted in two new positives among players and five among team personnel.
